Bosin not a fan of video games or reading, one pisses me off the other hurts my eye's and makes me tired.
Always was oýtside doing something. Thought about rc/robotics something I can physically do without being physical. Like building something to clean my decks while I look out the window. It has to have a purpose for me to stay interested. Thanks for the suggestion my son's love video games not my cup of tea unless its a drone with laser guided missiles. Lol

How about some small wood or metal projects. Maybe with a small table top lathe, or scroll, or hand carving. My head spacing is mostly out there, but I find my happy space tinkering around in my garage doing small projects like making something or fixing things. I know it canít be complex. Or Iím fracked.

No standing or bending or lifting I lose focus searching for hobbies, their either expensive or boring Johnny. That's why I'm asking for advice from yous professionals.

my old man got into wood carving when he retired takes some time to get used to it but you can make a few bucks on the side with that or another buddy of mine uses scrap metal and tools and welds them together to make different things and he enjoys coming up with new ideas

One of the things I started looking at when I began to realize that I could no longer do the physical stuff anymore, was trying to find things that we're more intellectual in nature. I've taken up music, writing, photography, web design, blogging etc... It's been a hell of switch for me, as for most of my life my self worth has been tied to my physical abilities. But I am coming around, and on my good days I look forward to hitting the keyboard for a few thousand words.

Dameon is in line with me buds I study all kinds of crap . tax , legal, political and legislative stuff more for the preservation of me and mine . well informed is well armed . the one I enjoy however is alternate energy . I study it experiment with it and apply it . the thing is finding things of interest and enjoyment for yourself . trial and error can help with this .
